An outstanding Quarter Peal Recording

Simon Lipscombe

It’s a challenge to get a good recording of ringing. It’s also a challenge to conduct a beautifully struck Quarter Peal…but to do both at once??

This Quarter was in memory of Simon Lipscombe, and also the Conductor’s Great Aunt. All photos and the recording used by permission. QP Information from Bellboard

  1. wonderful, thanks for your kind comments Rosalind. I put the camera in the middle chamber between the bells and the ringing room and it picked up the noise beautifully!
